"It was originally about how fortunate he was 'cause he was a guy around these girls that wanted to have 'fun' -- with him -- down there, which we do not speak lest we go blind," she said. The "Girls" video told of her repressed childhood and featured a colorful cast of characters, including pro wrestling manager Lou Albano as her father alongside her real mother.
